From broken bones to the most complex orthopedic conditions, the Pediatric Orthopaedics program at Children’s Hospital offers the region's most advanced care in a family-friendly environment.
We treat a wide range of pediatric problems, including complex fractures; sports injuries; deformities of the spine, bones, hips or feet; scoliosis; and infections of the musculoskeletal system.
U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks us as a top children’s hospital in the nation for orthopedic care.
We have a full-service outpatient clinic providing X-rays, casting services, referrals and consultations for physical and occupational therapy.
We offer some patients the EOS X-ray imaging system. It uses ultra-low radiation doses (up to 50 times lower depending on the scan type) to capture 2-D and 3-D images. Children who need frequent scans for their conditions are exposed to far less radiation over their lifetimes.
Our providers are all specialty trained in pediatric sports medicine or pediatric orthopedic surgery. This expertise means the best possible care for your child. Other programs and services we provide include general orthopedics and fracture care; care for scoliosis, cerebral palsy, spasticity and osteogenesis imperfecta; and a hip preservation clinic.
Our researchers make the discoveries that improve orthopedic care for children and teenagers here and at other hospitals nationwide where our trained doctors serve.
Children's Hospital takes care of your child – the whole child. A problem with your child’s bones or joints might bring you to our pediatric orthopedic team. If your child has other needs, we work with Vanderbilt specialists who offer other types of care, including rheumatology, neurology, neurosurgery, developmental medicine and endocrine/diabetes care.
